The devise is based on TENS and Micro-current therapy settings, however, goes beyond TENS by narrowing the output parameters to target the relief of peripheral neuropathy in the hands and feet.
The Neuro A and B mode are the main Neuropathy treatment modes, and have been specifically designed to target this type of nerve pain. As well, the Ultima Neuro offers TENS treatment sub-modes that can be used to treat a wide range of other nerve pain conditions.
The Ultima Neuro was designed to treat Peripheral Neuropathy of the hands and/or feet through treatment wraps that cover the extremity with circumferential electrotherapy stimulation. However, pre-gelled electrode pads can also be used with this system to treat other parts of the body if needed.
Unlike a basic TENS stimulator, the Ultima Neuro signals are vastly more advanced and precise with an auto-feedback loop that allows the Neuro to regulate the voltage based on different tissue masses. So the stimulator knows when it is treating a heavy set person, vs. thin. This auto adjustability helps tempo treatments to the individual’s needs (i.e. impedance of tissue mass). Also, in the Neuro there is a monophasic waveform that is typically associated with pushing and moving fluids – which is a particularly effective wave form in treating pain associated from Neuropathy.
Warnings: Patients who are pregnant or nursing should not use the device and it should only be used under the continued supervision of a physician. A physicians order is required to obtain the device.
